That's right, there used to be evil sim clones - one of the potions, wasn't it? An evil pod person sounds great but what would happen with the character files?

I think there might be a mirror somewhere that can do it.  Possibly a potion as well.  If it was done right it wouldn't mess up any character files, I don't think--just copy the Sim's genetics and outfit, and maybe interests and skills, into a separate Sim with a nastier disposition.  (Or a maybe a nicer one, if it happened to be a nasty Sim to begin with.)  XD  I don't know if memories, relationships and so on could be copied safely.  Some more awesome modder would have to be consulted...

Sorry, forgot to mention, I was off on a trip down memory lane then with Sims 1. There was a science lab where you could create 7? different potions - I thought the evil clone outcome was one of them.

It was. The clone 'disappeared' when it left the lot, I think. I vaguely remember that being somehow buggy, one time the clone of one of my other Sims wound up with the surname 'Newbie', as if it lived in that household... Any actions it performed to affect the relationship with other Sims seemed to affect your Sim's relationship with those same Sims.

I liked the 'Monster' potion on that. I'd lock them in a room with only easels, and they'd go nuts painting. Wink But don't let them near anything breakable, or it'd all wind up broken!

What else was there? Love potion... Invisibility... Mood boost... (I forgot the others... Google to the rescue!) Mood drop. Reverse personality (How could I forget the fun I had with that? Making a no-personality Sim and maxing them on that.) And the one that cured sickness.

I was so excited to see the Science career reward, but it turned out not to be the same. I miss the Sims 1 version.

We were considered the Addams Family of our neighborhood and my mother drove a hearse, so we weren't very normal either.  lol

But getting back on topic, I realize that many people do enjoy being out in the rain or during storms, and it's not unusual. I personally enjoy listening to them and watching them, but the topic of the thread was what mods are we begging for since Seasons came out and that's what I would beg for it is was possible... because if you didn't want them running inside, then you wouldn't have to download a mod that makes sims run inside during a storm, would you?


I guess I should have been more clear then and said "Normal" people Don't,

I'm quite proud of the fact that I'm not normal Wink  It's a family joke that whenever we want to insult each other my adult kids and I call each other "normal".

Getting back to topic: many people do enjoy being out in the rain or during storms, so it's not unusual.  Personally, if my sims are skilling outside then I don't want them running inside due to the weather.  A lot of players may want their sims to be outside during a thunderstorm, particularly if it's a knowledge sim with the want to be hit by lightning, or they may want to terrorise a sim of another aspiration with the fear.  A mod that makes sims run inside during a storm would be annoying.



I just felt heat and saw white. Everything turned white and there was a vibrating buzz and then I was looking up and my parents were hysterical. It had thrown me several yards ... and I couldn't talk or anything and don't remember the first few days afterwards but it had entered at my neck and exited at my heel and I have nerve damage from it. I was unable to walk for 6 months.


I was struck by lightening though, so I  have an aversion to my Sims standing out while it flashes around them. lol

What did it feel like? What happened?

Wow. Just, wow. Glad you survived it, how old were you? Maybe an adult would survive it better with a larger body mass.

because if you didn't want them running inside, then you wouldn't have to download a mod that makes sims run inside during a storm, would you?

The thing is, on this site, the mods are designed to work together and as a package.  Pescado doesn't do requests, he only makes stuff he wants in his game, and then shares most of it with us.  If you can convince Pescado that he wants his sims to run in out of the weather then you may be in luck.  But I wouldn't get your hopes too high ... after all he did add smite to the lot debugger.

Sounds similar to what happened to my brother.  He got electrocuted by some faulty machinery at his workplace.  The electricity entered through his his thumb/palm of his hand and exited through his heel.  He suffered muscle damage to his thumb, palm and heel as a result.  The doctors said he was lucky to have survived.

I see at least one other person has asked for 'no autonomous water balloon fights' and I will second, third or whatever that... in fact, I'd pay for that mod.  I am so sick and tired of my sims meeting someone for the first time and their next autonomous action with that person is to slam a water balloon into their face.  Works so well to 'win friends and influence people'...

I'm also really sick of the autonomous water balloon fights. My Sims will go outside in the rain and snow to throw water balloons at each other. It gets especially obsessive if the Sim is even a little bit in the red, temperature-wise. I'm always X-ing out stupid water balloon fights and directing them to get a drink of water out of the sink. Why in the world can't they just autonomously do that instead of trying to goad other Sims to hit them with a water balloon?

Only mod I am begging for the Seasons' return of (at the moment) is Dizzy's No Attraction mod. Farting hears all over the place. I forgot how annoying it actually was.

How about an non-autonomous 'clean-up' if there is food still on the plate. I love having a pond and being able to fish. It fills them up so fast. Even in the lighter red, they rarely finish the plate. But they get up automatically and clean-up if I'm not vigilant. I'd like for them to put it away automatically instead of cleaning up. I'll never have to re-stock the fridge....

Yep, I'd like a hack for that too.

Squinge has also made a no autonmous waterballoon fight hack.

However, rather than seeing it squashed altogether, I'd rather the game do a check for appropriate season (Summer), location (outdoors) and perhaps even body temperature - a sim who needs cooling down should be more likely to participate in or initiate this activity than a sim who does not need to cool down.

Agreed! I also have guests swimming at night while there is 3 feet of snow on the ground Huh


I would like...a no fire hack...for the cooker and the fireplaces and anything else than can and does catch fire.

Edit- A fire hydrant for dogs to use (instead of the path and garden) I think the Sims1 had one of these?

I know this from personal experience...on my honeymoon at the end of February in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  Shocked  It was warm in the pool and the pool was inside, but we had to run outside all the way to our "room" (it was a train made into a hotel with each room one end of a train car.)  It had been rather nice during the day, but at night it gets chilly up in the mountains.

You have a point, the pool was always warm in Spain even at night when it was chilly. I did wonder if they would freeze to death as they oftan stand around and play red-hands or something afterwards but it seems that no real harm can come of it so I stopped worrying  Grin

Real pools, even if unheated, will remain warm at night if it was warm during the day because water has a high specific heat and cools very slowly as a result. There's a lot of energy stored in that pool and it will take long time to lose it all. This is why places near the ocean tend to have lower temperature fluctuations: That huge ocean acts like a giant heat sink. Compare to, say, deserts, where the sand is not a very good heat sink and thus the desert goes from broiling to freezing very quickly at nightfall.

I should have realised that as a gardener, if there is water in a greenhouse (like Kew Gardens in London) the mean temperature is always higher and more stable, they nearly lost their orchids by forgetting this and draining the indoor pool. Plus my garden has a huge pool and in the summer it's always warmer and more humid in my garden than my friends even if the night is chilly.
